Tires!!

I need new tires before the snow flies. For those of you that tow and daily drive. What tire was the most stable and worked good all around. This is for a 99 SD 4x4. Just looking for a stock size but wider would look better. During the summer I tow my car trailer often and at most load weight is 6000-7000lbs. It had steelteks on it when I got it and when they where worn I replaced them with Cooper M+S . I got them because I liked the lug design and the supposed superior snow traction. However, the first time I hit the highway with my race car on the trailer I about shyt. Frigin tires are unstable as hell even cranked up to 85psi. Yep, they are E rated. Lots of side to side sway.
So I learned to live with it since I already had them. The steelteks drove straight with no sway . Just solid.

So give my your opinion/experience.

This is the best tire I ever bought for traction in the snow! They absolutely rock! However they are not E Rated. I tow my boat occasionally and its 5000 pounds without any adverse effects. I will buy them again
